How to Fire a Client

On the Profitable Joyful Consulting podcast, I teach you how to increase your profits and enjoy your business more. In this episode, you’ll learn how (and why) to fire a client.

If you’ve ever been out with colleagues venting about a client and heard them say, “Wow, you should fire that client,” today’s episode is for you.

I’ve had clients who’ve asked me, “How do I fire this client?” And I’ve had this experience myself, too. It’s important for you to know: you CAN fire a client. You’re not stuck with them, and you don’t have to be trapped in a terrible situation. If you wanted to be miserable and stuck, you would have stayed back at corporate. 😉

In this episode, I talk about what you need to do to make firing a client the least horrible experience for everyone involved.

Key areas discussed in this episode

  • How to minimize the damage of firing someone
  • How to avoid the situation of needing to fire someone in the intake process
  • My favorite question to ask when dealing with difficult clients and situations
  • How to extract yourself from an uncomfortable, difficult client situation with the least amount of damage possible
  • What to do next once you’ve fired a client
  • How to conclude work in a way that really takes the high ground and honors everyone involved

Tune into this episode to get some ideas and permission to let go of those clients who are no longer in alignment for you.
